Manchester United register interest in signing teenage goalkeeping sensation

Nathan Trott

Manchester United are interested in West Ham United’s young goalkeeper Nathan Trott, according to the Mirror.

The Bermuda-born shot-stopper joined the Hammers when he was 17 and has progressed into the first-team.

The youngster is now a third-choice at London Stadium, behind Lukasz Fabianski and Adrian. The report adds that Manchester City and RB Leipzig are also keeping close tabs on the young prodigy.

The 19-year-old has 18 months left on his contract, and West Ham are trying to tie him down to a new deal, states the Mirror.

The east London club also have to deal with young Declan Rice’s contract situation. However, keeping both young guns would be a good achievement.

United did sign Lee Grant from Stoke City to provide cover for David De Gea and Sergio Romero. In any case, the summer recruit is a third-choice keeper at the club. Instead, it would be better to sign the 19-year-old and keep him in the periphery of the team.
